Say what you will about the prototypes that Pentagram designed, (they are prototypes, afterall) but I find the system stunningly simple. And I think this video is such a succinct, effective way to show people — designers, stakeholders, decision-makers — how to use the new Mastercard brand. A great deliverable for an agency to give their client.
